How we interview:

We’re looking for bright, team-oriented professionals capable of achieving results even when they encounter resistance and experience frequent change. This is the core of how and who we hire.

Our process is quite simple. The path to getting hired usually involves a conversation with Human Resources, a phone or video interview, and onsite interviews at the home office or a Springs community.

  • Depending on the job you’re considering, we might also do some assessments. These might include a strengths-based communication survey and position-specific case study or knowledge-based assessments. All candidates participate in our behavioral/skill based reference checking assessment.

 

Formal Interviews

  • We discuss your past experiences – accomplishments and challenges – to discover skills that will allow you to thrive at Continental. Come prepared to discuss your past experiences in a thoughtful way, focusing on your specific roles and key actions that were critical to your success.

 

HOW WE MAKE A DECISION

There are a few things we do to ensure that we’re always hiring the right candidate for the right role.

  • We gather feedback from multiple interviewers. Some will be potential teammates, but some may come from other teams/departments. This helps us see how you collaborate and fit with the Continental team
  • We involve senior leadership, including our President and CEO, for home office positions and Property Manager positions to ensure we never compromise on standards and cultural fit

We believe that a rigorous process is key to ensuring that we’re adding only the best and brightest to our team. Our goals are for the process to be both meaningful and efficient for you and our hiring team, to reduce our time-to-fill while not compromising on candidate quality, and to maintain a high level of communication with all candidates.

The process of how – and who – to hire is the same across the entire company. There are, though some pieces of the process that look a little different depending on the team, department and location. Our Human Resources team is here to help you navigate through these.

Continental is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
